Porcine parvovirus (PPV) is considered to be one of the major causes of reproductive failure in swine [1,2]. First described from aborted fetal swine in 1967 by Cartwright and Huck [3], PPV is linked to the reoccurrence of estrus, abortion, and the delivery of mummified or stillborn fetuses [4], the so-called SMEDI (stillbirth, mummification, embryonic death, and infertility) syndrome. The virus is endemic in most areas of the world and can be found in all pig herd categories.
